For the love of fur

Do people not have anything more important to do than being angry? Daddy always used to tell me that anger and hatred originates in jealousy. It's usually true.
When girls excluded me in grammer school, it was because I had perfect hair and prettier dresses. When boys called me a bitch in high school, it was because I wouldn't lower m standards and make out with any of them.
I believe the PETA-people are jealous too. They look like they live in a dumpster and wish they were me.
You can't afford a fur? Then you might as well hate on those who can!

I love furs, always have. Not that I ever got to use them in Aussie! I think I prefer seasons over summer all year. I love the minis and espadrillos in summer, and love the furs and boots in winter. Wrapping myself in dead animals keeps me warm inside and out. Last year, hubby bought me a polar bear fur to put next to my bed, so it's the first thing I step on each morning. Lovely.

Yesterday I ran into a couple of PETA lunatics.
"Animal killer!" one screamed at me on.
I kept ignoring them and talking on my cell. After a few blocks of stalking me while chanting "murderer" and "you're a walking cemetery", I'd had enough.
"Look, if you want a dollar to start a fund for your own fur coats, all you gotta do is ask", I said and stuffed a fiver in their hands.
Before they knew it I'd hailed a cab and hopped in. As we took off, they kicked the back of the car. Poor cabbie looked shocked, but I said "don't worry about it, here you go" and handed him two fifties.
Enough good deeds for this week.

Fur looks nice, but have you ever considered the moral aspects? You mention your dog.. You know the coat you're wearing might just be dogs? How do you feel about that?

You're right jealousy does fuel people's desires, especially those that can't have what others already have. Too bad for them.

Wear your fur in good health. Enjoy!!

Best. Comeback. Ever.

A friend of mine recently wore her grandmother's old fur walking up Park Ave in the 60s when she was accosted by some PETA-peeps. Her reaction when I saw her?

"You know you've arrived when you get harassed by PETA!"

Oh, this is so cliche.

When the snobby, soulless and deluded type of girl experiences rejection, her excuse is always, "They're just jealous."

Come up with something new already.

I completely understand. One time, while attending a benefit for underprivilidged negro children, I accidentelly tipped who I assumed to be the "bouncer." Long story short, he was actally Chairman of the Foundation!!! I laughed and laughed, though he didn't find it particularly amusing. I later came to realize that I was wearing La Croix couture, while his wife was wearing some monstrosity that was clearly never showcased at Barneys. I later realized that he didn't have nearly as much money as me, and that I was being punished! Don't punish me because I'm rich and beautiful, God damn it!

For those Peta people, I suspect superiority complexes play a factor in their behavior. I doubt it's jealously. Which doesn't make any sense since most of the Peta lunatics are wearing leather boots too.

Fur has something that I found very warming inside out... and people tend to be jelous when others get the care and lust feelings of fur... You go on wearing it. It's fabulous!!!
